Thank you,il wait for a used one in 12 months!
12 months.......you buying the V3 ;)

From a selfish point of view = I use extension speaker's and would rather the speaker was on the underside,resulting in a much bigger display (easier to see at 70+mph eh) as none of "our" eyesight is getting any better,and not many modern motors have a spare din slot ;)

70mph+ .....it is the eu version for the autobahns.

Simon, is the uk fm still programmed in export in export mode.
As Delboy says yes it’s in there. But only the 40 UK, then press F and takes you directly to the band you came for. As it’s Uniden it’s pyramidical programming which can be a pfafff but loads of radios out there.

Biggest funny is I tried two radios, and I’ve modified one for a Waberer driver who wanted it in his truck but I can’t get one. Ordered one but they came into stock and were sold out. So wait for next shipment or fine at another place :D Then the real thoughts will come out....

Well I hope you enjoyed the three review videos I did, it works well out the box and I like it.
Some have complained about the looks, but to me it looks OK.

Anyway it is not far away now.

Good videos Dave,does the right hand side of the radio get hot like the one S.T.W. has shown on one he has tested ?

Maybe just Simons radio as it was in export mode doing more than it was meant to do (4/12w)......soon find out.

Mine is fine as it is still in stock form, I have plenty of other radios to use in Export (If I ever wanted to)........I may convert it to do both, but I'm sure this radio has had many hours of tests and I love mine.

They seem to have two prices from what I can see. £244.99 & £249.99. Not sure why.

I was lucky enough to get mine at their original price. It should be here in the next day or two.

^^ Price drop = too much above the competition and not selling as expected,should start seeing them going second-hand in the coming week's.
